It's function and structure is rooted in legacy representations dating back thousands of years. Collaborating with designers and engineers our project seeks to re-consider what the calendar does for us and how we may perceive and represent our time, personally and collectively. This paper investigates the background to 'the calendar problem' and documents design-led research. Seeking to identify some of the key problems with the current representation and to establish criteria for new interpretations of the meaning of calendar.
